    Oh there is no question that the 780 is overpriced. I'm fully aware I paid about a $100-150 "lulz AMD can't touch this" price premium per card.

    I was just tired of the noise and stutter I was having to always deal with on my 7970s, and wanted to sell them before they lost $50-100 resell value each once the 770 etc get released, since I think they stood to lose more resell value over the next two months than they were going to make in BTC. I figure the fact that I could sell them at $440/ea covers the current 780 price premium.

    That was really well sold that's how its done. Thats mainly how I do my builds but sadly I will probably have to skip this whole generation because I frankly have no need. My two 4GB 670's in sli are monsters and I'm still getting more performance on most games than what one single 780 would bring and two of those would be out of my mental price range. What this means is that I think I have a stable enough setup to carry me over Nvidia 7 series, AMD 8 or 9 series and maybe over Haswell too (which quite frankly has nothing new to offer me).

    I like when card is cubic and wide and can't see heat pipes.
    Heat pipes spoil look of graphic.

    It's not available in Serbia too but that will not stop me to buy one.
    Distributor when I ask for import EVGA GTX780 Classified say me I will give you Gainward Titan for only little more price. But I don't want that.
    I would change Titan for this card always.
    I didn't like non reference cards before but I don' like example look of Titan and GTX690 too - silver.
    780 OC better and have much better PCB and design for OC than any Titan.
    And I was thought when I saw ACX teaser how that will look, something new totally.
    But this is serious, design is cubic and wide, almost closed but again much better cooling than stock.

    Important is 8+8 pin and this two fans are serious 14+3 phase is advantage for people who use LN2 and watercooling but it's not bad to know you have something like that inside PC.
    I would rather smash my whole PC and both console than pay so expensive money for someone what I don't like only to work.
    Why I have window side panel and look on everything and than to buy graphic card only to have any 780.
    I don't want that. Money is hard to earning today, no options, no compromise...for hardware.
    You have lot of option for order in India work and PayPal and everything.
    EVGA service is best on the world you have option from Europe, Germany I think or USA.
    But lot of online shop in different countries sell their graphic cards because that is best NVIDIA on world. This card didn't launch, for few weeks they say.

    And I think 780 is exactly what people need with one card. Metro Last Light Benchmark is around 50-55fps with highest settings. I don't want card to play with video settings half hour.
    GTX780 or SLI GTX770 for 2560 resolution is exactly for good playing. GTX780 for 2560 is not enough if you want to play 12-24 months. I mean with all filters that is more important than resolution.

    EVGA ACX Cooler is nicer than stock 780 definitely I look close every cm of card.
    I love stock cards, but these ACX are really nice.
    I think now If show GTX780 ACX SC in Serbia I would buy and that.
    I will not wait Classified. But If I go on import than I will choose what I like most.
    I'm ready to pay 100e more for EVGA than ASUS.
